Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Sholem Aleichem and Isaac Bashevis Singer are each household names, and together, their writing careers spanned virtually the entire twentieth century. Their deep affinity transcends their shared celebrity, though. They defined the Yiddish response to modernity by taking a stance against progress and the other developmental ideals that had powered the Haskalah (Jewish Enlightenment). Drawing on the speaker Miriam Udal's award-winning book Never Better!: The Modern Jewish Picaresque, this talk will explain the central role of various deceptions—the swindle in the case of Sholem Aleichem and the seduction in that of Bashevis Singer—in illustrating a rapidly changing world.
